Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kaplan "I understand that eye health is very important to the quality of one's life, and issues that effect the eye can be very frightening to the patient. This is why I strongly believe in spending as much time as the patient needs to full understand what their problems are, and what the best options are for dealing with their eye concerns. I believe in treating every patient the way I would like to be treated as a patient in a doctor's office, myself."

Lake Zurich, IL |
Dr. Kaplan came in after hours and gave me his cell phone number when I had a serious eye injury. He is compassionate and goes above and beyond what is expected to take care of his patients. The ER doctor that also treated me said that Dr. Kaplan is the nicest doctor he's ever spoken with.

I recently saw dr. Kaplan, having seen other physicians in the practice and not being able to get an appointment with them. He entered the room and went to shake my hand BEFORE WASHING HIS HANDS! I am not a germaphobe, I am a doctor who teaches other doctors! I was appalled. when I asked him to wash his hands, he complied. I will NEVER see this provider again. Note, I waited 45 minutes for this appointment and had to go to the desk an inquire why I had been waiting so long.
